How To: Make butterflies FLY!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok, I am going to just try to explain this without pics, and then if you guys need a pic just let me know and I will see what I can do. But the finished product will be at the end of the post.

What you will need:

Ink
Butterfly stamp (the more solid the better, meaning NOT an outline)
Card Stock
Regular copy paper (can be the same color as card stock but white should work fine)
Double sided tape

That's it!!

Ok all you do, is stamp your butterfly in the card stock that you are using for your card or page layout. Then you stamp the same butterfly on the Reg. paper (card stock will work if it is flimsy). CUT OUT the butterfly on the flimsy paper and don't worry about the antennaes). Then put a small little piece of double sided tape on the "body" of the butterfly, place it ever so gently on top of the butterfly that is on your card or page. And then simply fold up the wings!!

Viola!! A butterfly that "flies" off the paper.

Good luck!!

Here are two cards that I did: (in the second pic it is the card on the left)

I should add that this is NOT my technique, I learned this at the SU workshop that I was at over the weekend.

Glad you guys like it!!
